to our top story. we're awaiting president obama's new gun control proposals. the president is expected to caller to the most sweeping changes to gun laws in years, if not decades, prompting concerns among supporters of gun rights in this country. good morning to you. i'm jon scott. jenna: i'm sure glad you're not stuck between two walls. that would put a damper on the show. jon: would make it difficult to get here and do the research. jenna: we'll try to get answers on that story. hi, i'm jenna lee. in less than an hour the president will outline his efforts to curb goon violence. he is expected to ask congress to ban military-style assault weapons. many of you have questions exactly what those weapons are. we'll talk a little bit about that in the program. also on the list, suggestion to ban high-capacity magazines as well. the white house also made it clear the president will act unilaterally where he can to achieve this agenda. this comes in the wake of the massacre at sandy hook elementary school in connecticut. a tragedy certainly no one wants repeated. how to prevent that type of
, it has got to have 100,000 signatures in the span of 30 days to get an official response from the obama administration. the previous requirement for an official response was just 25,000. the white house says the change is needed after the site suddenly got very popular, flooded with sometimes not so serious petitions. one of them demanded the u.s. build a death star. another called on the forced deportation of our cnn host piers morgan. that's it for me now. brooke baldwin continues on "cnn newsroom." >>> as reaction pours in on the president's gun proposal, we aren't going to tell you what is illegal. we will show you what's illegal. you'll hear it straight from a gun dealer. i'm brooke baldwin. the news is now. they lived a middle class life, going to work, playing tennis. but behind closed doors they were sleeper spies, delivering secrets for cash. >>> plus, the jet of the future grounded. why dreamliners' new problem leads to a drastic move. >>> and -- >> just devastating. i think the whole town is probably just mortified about it. >> a dad and his two young sons go hiking. but neve
base but including potentially his democratic leader in the united states senate. will president obama, the leader of the democratic party, call out his democratic leader in the senate? will he have a fight with his own leadership? is it that important to him? when push comes to shove, the congress says we can give you this, mr. president, not that, will he put the whole weight of the office behind it, do whatever he takes? that's a huge test when he has many priorities and he's thinking of what any second term president does of his legacy. >> endanger of the control of the senate. you have somebody up from gun states. >> let's go to our chief white house correspondent, jessica yellin. you're in the auditorium where the president spoke. the vice president spoke. the president signed those executive orders. is the president ready to do everything he possibly cannot just to get background checks, make them universal but also to deal with the assault weapons and the magazine clips? >> reporter: hi, wolf. the sense i've been getting from people who have come out of the meetings here with t
of the aurora shooting, newtown massacre and ambush in new york, president obama will unveil his gun control plan today. it calls for universal background checks, a ban on assault weapons, a ban on high xhas magazines that hold more than ten rounds, and most of funding for mental health programs. in the month since the newtown massacre, the debate over gun control has intensified with membership in the national rifle association reportedly surging. the nra is touting some 250,000 new members and vowing to fight the president's plan saying their second amendment rights are under attack. dan lothian is following all these developments in washington. what's the latest? >> the white house sees these recommendations as a way to hopefully curb gun violence and some of these things the president has backed before such as a ban on assault weapons. the president shortly after the connecticut shootings came out in support of that. so that's expected to be in the president's plan. also pressing for a ban on those high capacity magazines with more than ten rounds. that's the important note here. the aim
the president has been late, four of those 11 have been under the obama administration. we're also informed that there is a chance once again, like there was a year and a half ago, that our credit rating of the u.s. could be lowered again. by another credit rating agency. some have tried to paint it as a different story, different picture, but for those of us who recall what happened, s&p made it clear that they didn't believe that the united states was serious about dealing with this dramatic spending problem, overspending problem. where we were spending $1.5 billion, $1.6 trillion, over $1 trillion more than the $2-plus trillion that we had coming in. and that if we didn't at least reduce the massive overspending annually by at least $400,000 -- $400 billion, rather, for 10 years, a total of $4 trillion over a 10-year period, then it would make it pretty clear that we were not serious about dealing with our debt. i know the obama administration went on the warpath after s&p, after the credit rating was lowered. personally i think it's the s&p's credit they did bha they said. we came in --
of the public statements we have seen since president barack obama said it was time for meaningful action to reduce gun violence, because what we have seen this many people argue the president is taking away our rights. i call this confusion, because many people apparently have not been reading the court cases that interpret the second amendment and tell us what it means. as larry and i argue in our contribution, the most popular proposals being considered today are likely constitutional. that is not to say there are not any questions about any of them, but they are likely to be upheld by the supreme court should they be enacted. from background checks to restrictions on sale of high- capacity magazines and even a ban on assault weapons, we think it is likely the supreme court will uphold these provisions. in defense of those who do seem confused about the nature of our second amendment rights, the supreme court has not done a great job of clarifying what is the scope of our second amendment rights. as most of you know, in 2008, the supreme court held that the second amendment protects th
